Director, Institute of Science and Technology for Brain-Inspired Intelligence, Fudan University, China
Boigraphy: Shouyan WANG received the BSc degree in Biomedical Engineering in 1994, and the MSc and PhD degree in Physiology from the Fourth Military Medical University, Xi’an, China, in 1997 and 2000, respectively. He was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Neurosurgery Department of JR Hospital and Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at University of Oxford from 2002 to 2007. He worked as a Lecturer in the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research at University of Southampton from 2007 to 2012. He became a Professor of Suzhou Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the Directors of the Biomedical Electronics Department, Key Lab of Neural Engineering and Technology at Suzhou from 2012 to 2017. Professor Shouyan Wang is currently the director of Intelligence and Neural Engineering Centre at Institute of Science and Technology for Brain Inspired Intelligence, Fudan University. His research focuses on the intelligent neuromodulation of deep brain stimulation for neurological diseases, including identification of biomarkers from human deep brain local field potentials, development of miniaturized adaptive electrical or optical stimulator, and monitoring of motor or sensory behaviors with wearables devices. Professor Shouyan Wang works toward integrating engineering, neuroscience, neurology and neurosurgery to advance the deep brain stimulation technology and clinical translation.
